Vegan Sashimi at Yasaitei (18/02/2011)

It has been some time since I paid my last visit to Yasaitei.
I do have to show up there regulaly as they use only seasonal vegetables and other products, be they from the land or the sea!

My vegan and vegetarian (I’m not!) friends know this is a place where they can expect a full meal (thinking ofdevising one for the next article!) according to their priorities! Even the shochu and sake are OK!

All vegetables, from the very snack coming with the first drink!

Yasaitei might be an unpretentious izakaya, but it is a very elegant one!
The chopsticks are of great quality and the paper tablecloth is always decorated with seasonal motifs. Rape flowers/na no hana/菜の花 in this case!

So here is the vegan vegetable sashimi of the day!
Great colors as usual!

Ice plant, myoga (almost completely hidden as it was used as a support), celery, red cabbage (in Japanese, although it is dark violet) and mini radishes.

Daikon (sweet and juicy!) supported by chopped winter onion and a leaf of perilla/shiso. (Yellow carrot at the back.)

A side-view of the daikon support.

Cute urui/hasta montana and crunchy cucumber!

Always wondering what is going to be on offer next time!
